The Golden Vale Milk Clare Community Games Hurling competition took place on Saturday 15th of May at St Flannans College Ennis in ideal weather conditions. The Co-ordinator Adrian Hogan from Kilmurry Sixmilebridge did an excellent job. All matches were run off very efficiently and on time. There were some very good & exciting matches. The referees on the day were Brian McDonnell of Kilmaley, Kevin McNamara of Sixmilebridge & Noel McInerney of Newmarket-on-Fergus and they all did a great job. In the quarter finals Newmarket-on-Fergus got a walkover from Derg. Shannon were beaten by a much stronger Sixmilebridge/Kilmurry. Clarecastle/Ballyea beat Kilmaley while Doora/Barefield beat Ennis by 1 point in extra time. In the semi-finals Sixmilebridge/Kilmurry beat Newmarket and Clarecastle/Ballyea beat Doora/Barefield. The final was a very exciting and tough match with Sixmilebridge/Kilmurry coming out as winners 5-4 to 2-2. Sixmilebridge went on to represent Clare in the Munster finals in July where they secured Silver medals. The medals were presented by Clare hurler Colin Ryan.
